My suggestions for the development team

KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS for:
-Black and white tool/sliders
-Rename a layer
-Selecting Layers 1,2,3,4,5 ( not just up and down )
-User Styles/Presets
-Create masked layer from selection.
-Copy Mask From Layer 1,2,3,4 etc

Other suggestions:
-Radial brush
The radial is a huge timesaver in terms of masking. Drawing a small/big circular/eliptical feathered mask with 1 mouse click and drag is always a good thing.

-Create multiple Gradients in 1 layer ( by holding shift for example)
-Search bar in Keyboard Shortcuts
-Brush Presets
-Moving/changing crop with keyboard
-Luminance based Masking. So we can do Luminance vs Saturation corrections. (like davinci resolve)
-Scopes ( like davinci resolve )

Currently i use Keyboard Maestro to trigger my most used Styles with Macro’s.
For example, When i hit F1 on my keyboard i have my black and white style applied.
This functionality would make C1 even better! ( without using macro's)

Maybe this is possible, but I can't see how...

In the Lens Tool, if I click on the Distortion slider, the grid overlay appears. Great.

But, I can't see a way of keeping it there without holding down the mouse cursor on the Distortion slider.

I'd simply like to be able to click on the Lens Tool and choose Show Grid, so that I could then make single increment adjustments in the number box and see the changes.

Equally, it would allow me use Rotation and Flip with a fine grid visible. Yes, I know I can use Grid Lines for this, and I know I can add Grid Lines. But, I've got grid lines set up for Rule of Thirds composition tweaks, so I don't want to add any more lines to it.

So, if Show Grid is not possible, I'd certainly like it. Hardly a rocket science addition, in terms of complexity, I would have thought.

Pixel Shift. (Will most likely happen first with Sony but everyone else will not be considered)
The ability to have Pentax lenses (no not the 645 bodies) actually show up in Camera Lens.
Pentax serial number.

Not exactly sure what you mean by pixel shift; but, if you’re alluding to the pixel-shift 4 shot capability of, for example, the Sony A7r iii, if you first convert one of those files to a .dng, can’t you then process it in C1? That is how I work around being able to process a Helicon Focus processed file in C1.

1. Radial Gradient Masks.
2. The pixel size of the image crop
3. Better support of wacom
4. Support multitouch devices like Surface Pro
5. Support Surface dial

  1. Full-screen viewing with F11. Need to view the IMAGE in full screen with F11, not the GUI! GUI full screen can be relegated to Shift+F11. The F10 pop-up viewer window almost does this, but not quite: it cannot make the image full screen, and you can't exit from it immediately with Esc key, making it tedious to use. Exiting Full screen should be as easy as hitting Esc. Also make it so that you can change photos to prev/next with left/right arrow keys [and maybe up/down keys, according to the thumbnail view].
  2. Color management transform diagram, so we know that Capture One is compatible with the Windows Color System (WCS). It took many months to research the WCS and color-managed workflows on wide-gamut monitors in Windows 10. Fortunately, C1 is fully color-aware, as opposed to partially. See the screenshots below for a comparison between unaware and aware programs.

    If someone knows how to resize these images using BBcode please tell me in PM.

  3. Fix the bugged Recipe Proofing and add split view. It does not appear to respond to changes in export quality or color space. It is difficult to tell. It responds to size/dimensions. Make it so that the viewer does not flash inbetween profile loads, so that subtle differences are made apparent. Also provide a split view to see the difference. And set the default recipe proofing profile to "no profile" instead of "selected recipe". This default is misleading during editing phase, if the color space is respected.
  4. Make it easier to swap between a grey/black/white background for the photo editor. I often under-expose images when editing in black background mode, but white background mode is extremely annoying for general purpose editing.

Yes, you can use "other" software to combine the four images into a single image and use Capture One for further processing. What I want is for Capture One to do the four image merge, not some combination of "other" software vendors that have a history of hit and miss capabilities. The use of "other" software a pain since the "other" software tends to create intermittent files that are proprietary in nature. Capture One's forte is color fidelity and pixel-shift provides bayer layer less color implementation.

As for the Sony, they are the noobs on the block. Pentax has been producing camera bodies (NOT THE 645 BODIES) with pixel shift for nearly a half a decade. Panasonic and Olympus have versions of pixel-shift that are a little older than Pentax. Now I expect that Capture One will come out with a Sony pixel-shift solution first, simply because of the hand in hand development of sensors and other technologies between Phase One and Sony. However, Sony's implementation of pixel-shift is not as refined as Pentax - sorry to break that news to you. Pixel-shift is based on IBIS which has been in all Pentax 35mm (Capture One's terms not mine) bodies since 2005.

I also think that a pixel-shift technology could play well into Phase One's Cultural Heritage line of business. Their 100+MP backs would be even better at providing color fidelity for digitizing books, pictures, film and other important objects. If you look at the latest Hasselblad camera bodies with six shot pixel-shift, they are specifically suggesting that their implementation is aimed at Cultural Heritage processes. I suspect that Sony's implementation will be the first used by Capture One. Pentax, Panasonic and Olympus will be left out in the cold.

Not sure why all the history, patronizingly delivered. I couldn't be ar*ed.

I've been using multi-shot Hasselblad for 12 years.

I was just trying to be helpful.

I'll be more careful next time.

Multi-shot is not pixel-shift. Hasselblad introduced their version of pixel-shift in 2014 not 2002.

Maybe already asked for, but may as well add to the chorus...

1) DAM - Happy to have less introduced features, and gain instead greater stability and speed in the DAM.
2) Thumbnail - Ability to choose either: show rotations and crops in thumbnails as either masked (as now) or actual image (the result of rotation and crop).
3) Metadata - Use meta-data panel the same as keyword setting, whereby a change to a meta data field will change all currently selected photos without having to do a cut and paste action.
4) Keywords - a) Allow each keyword to be flagged or not for export and/or display. This will allow labels and categories within the keyword hierarchy without those labels and category names showing up as a keyword in a file. b) Have the ability to associate synonyms with each keyword, for export and/or display. c) have an option to easily merge one keyword with a another, thus combining the images associated with both keywords into the selected keyword.
5) Panels - Make them dockable and horizontally stackable to the left or right of primary viewing window.

Many thanks Phase One, I trust you are reading all of our many wishes... ;)

White balance picker should use area (of at least 3x3 pixels) rather than just one point. The photon shot noise alone makes the current solution erratic.

Amen to that. Photoshop CS6 has 1x1, 3x3 and 5x5, as I recall. (Not in front of it right now.) But, it does make a difference.

That said, been teaching myself editing with DaVinci Resolve, and the Scopes feature (a diagrammatic rendering of the RGB values in an image) is a killer app when white balancing.

And Lightroom uses a 13x13 grid.

1- Radial Brush
2- Stacking for HDR purposes
3- Keyboard shortcut to add keywords (shortcut would place cursor in the add keyword box)
4- Being able to see folder content recursively when using "show hierarchy". For example, if I have 3 levels of folders (YY > MM > DD) I should be able to see the whole year if I click on YY. Same if I click on MM, I should see all the photos for that month without having to browse each individual day one by one.

* Print "module"
the print side of CO needs much improving...creating a print is kind of a long journey. And if you try to produce again the exactly same print you have done in a previous session...good luck...you have to set yet again all settings. There should be presets (yes, like in Lightroom) that include EVERY print setting - from the printer, the printer driver settings, layout, icc profile...just simply everything at the cklick of a preset.

* Presets
and the preset concept could also be handy in other places like the import dialog.
